The scattering dynamics of the state-to-state reaction H + D2 (v(i) = 0, j(i) = 0, m(i) = 0) --> HD (v(f) = 3, j(f) = 0, m(f) = 0) + D is investigated, where vi, ji, mi and vf, jf, mf are initial and final vibrational, rotational, and helicity quantum numbers, respectively. We use accurate quantum scattering matrix elements for total energies in the range(More)
State-of-the-art differential cross sections (DCSs) have been reported by Wang et al. [Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci. (U.S.), 2008, 105, 6227] for the state-to-state F + H(2)→ FH + H reaction using fully quantum-state-selected crossed molecular beams. We theoretically analyze the angular scattering of this reaction, in order to quantitatively understand the physical(More)
The differential cross section (DCS) for the I + HI(v(i) = 0, j(i) = 0) --> IH(v(f) = 0, j(f) = 2) + I reaction at a translational energy of 21.3 meV is studied, where v(i), j(i) and v(f), j(f) are vibrational, rotational quantum numbers for the initial and final states respectively. We apply new theoretical developments (since 2001) in nearside-farside(More)
The differential cross section (DCS) for the CH4 + Cl → CH3 + HCl reaction is studied at six total energies where all of the species are in their ground states. The scattering (S) matrix elements have been calculated by the rotating line umbrella method for a dual-level ab initio analytic potential energy surface. We make the first application to this(More)
We report two new contributions for understanding the quantum dynamics of the benchmark state-to-state reaction, F + H2(vi, ji, mi) → FH(vf, jf, mf) + H, where (vi, ji, mi) and (vf, jf, mf) are the initial and final vibrational, rotational, and helicity quantum numbers, respectively. We analyze product differential cross sections (DCSs) for the transitions,(More)
The technique of local angular momentum-local impact parameter (LAM-LIP) analysis has recently been shown to provide valuable dynamical information on the angular scattering of chemical reactions under semiclassical conditions. The LAM-LIP technique exploits a nearside-farside (NF) decomposition of the scattering amplitude, which is assumed to be a Legendre(More)

We investigate methods for filtering reaction mechanisms in the angular scattering of the state-to-state reaction, H + D(2)(v(i) = 0, j(i) = 0, m(i) = 0) --> HD(v(f) = 3, j(f) = 0, m(f) = 0) + D, where v(i), j(i), and m(i) and v(f), j(f), and m(f) are initial and final vibrational, rotational, and helicity quantum numbers, respectively.
